Tried all that?
Feel free to ask your question, and we hope someone can help you However, remember these important points when posting:
1) Explain the problem clearly! We don't know what you are trying to do, so make sure you explain your goal and precisely what the problem seems to be.
2) Post a .cap file! (".cap" is the format Construct saves files in) This can help everyone solve your problem much more quickly if we can investigate what you've done ourselves and try it out. It saves us time from having to set up what you described, and also, you might forget to mention something important you did in your .cap file (which could be the cause/solution to your problem). Also, the simpler the file is, the better. Post a .cap!
3) Bookmarked events help others find the events you're talking about in larger projects.
4) If it crashes, it's a bug! Ideally, software should never crash. A crash indicates the program has failed, not the user. In this case, post a bug report.
Thanks, and we hope you solve your issue quickly!
